What are SARMs?
SARMS, or Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators, are a group of unique androgen receptors that are purported to be similar to anabolic steroids in their action, yet far more “selective.” What this means, according to proponents of SARMs, is that the products have a tissue-selective action in the body which allow them to provide the benefits of an anabolic steroid without the side effects.
What’s the Problem with Ostarine?
In recent years, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has reported an increasing number of positive tests involving Ostarine, a popular brand of SARM, even though only illegal products carry it, and Ostarine is not currently available as a prescription medication in the U.S. or any other country. Many of these positive tests are likely due to supplement contamination, as manufacturers have been accused of illegally adding Ostarine and other SARMs to their products. Some companies have even been caught omitting Ostarine from their products’ labeling entirely, and/or using misleading names to confuse consumers.
Some of the more popular SARMs on the U.S. market include:
- MK-2866 or GTx-024 (Ostarine)
- LGD-4033 (Ligandrol)
- GSX-007 or S-4 (Andarine)
- GW-501516 (Cardarine)
- And more
